What is Talkspace about?
Talkspace makes therapy available and affordable for all. Our mission is to provide more people with convenient access to licensed therapists who can help those in need live a happier and healthier life.
We are not trying to replace in-office therapy. Many people prefer that, which is fine. We created Talkspace so more people could benefit from therapy and overcome their day-to-day challenges in a stigma-free environment.
With Talkspace, you can send a therapist text messages, audio messages, as well as picture and video messages in a private, text-based chat room. Talkspace stands out because of the affordability and convenience it provides.
How can Talkspace improve my life?
We have thousands of licensed therapists, many of whom are trained in multiple areas of expertise. We have helped people with the following and more.
- Eating Disorders
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- LGBT Issues
- Relationships (Family or Friends)
Do you offer Couples Therapy?
Yes. With Couples Counseling you and your partner will share the same therapist. The flexibility of Talkspace on your phone or web browser means you won’t have to find time for both of you to visit the therapist’s office. You and your partner can sign in to a shared private room whenever and share your experiences with your therapist. Your therapist will come in on a schedule and respond. It’s easier than waiting a week to remember what to talk about, and you won’t have to rearrange your lives or hire a babysitter.
Couples therapy is available for $99/week (billed as $396 monthly) or $89/week (billed $1068 every 3 months).
When will the therapist respond to me?
Because our therapists are real people who have multiple clients, families, lives, etc. (just like you and me), each therapist is a little different. Usually the therapist will respond once or twice a day. Other users like to set up a specific time once each week with their therapist so that they can message each other in real time (sort of like a face-to-face session would be). The best thing to do is talk to your therapist about your schedule and your needs, and see what will work best for both of you.
What if I don’t really like typing everything out?
If you do not wish to type out messages, we’ve made it easy for you to create audio, video and picture messages.
